The Walking Dead Officially Renewed for Fourth Season

by SuperHeroHype

December 21, 2012

We've just received this joint statement from AMC and The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara:

Today, AMC announces the season 4 pick-up of The Walking Dead.
AMC also jointly announces with Glen Mazzara today that for future seasons, the two parties have mutually decided to part ways. Glen guided the series creatively for seasons 2 and 3. AMC is grateful for his hard work. We are both proud of our shared success.

Both parties acknowledge that there is a difference of opinion about where the show should go moving forward, and conclude that it is best to part ways. This decision is amicable and Glen will remain on for post-production on season 3B as showrunner and executive producer.


Mazzara is credited with writing six episodes of The Walking Dead and has served as the series showrunner since the departure of Frank Darabont.

The Walking Dead is currently on hiatus, but the second half of Season 3 premieres on Sunday, February 10th.

Ugh, here we go again with AMC thinking they know better than the guys who made the show not just a success but a HUGE hit. Great. I'm glad it's renewed, but I don't think this is a great thing. :(

Why Did Glen Mazzara Leave The Walking Dead?

by SuperHeroHype

January 09, 2013

Last month, it was confirmed that The Walking Dead would be returning for a fourth season and it would be under the watchful eye of the series third showrunner as Glen Mazzara would be leaving the production. Much like Frank Darabont in July of 2011, Mazzara's departure was somewhat shrouded in mystery as the only reason given by AMC was that "both parties acknowledge that there is a difference of opinion about where the show should go moving forward, and conclude that it is best to part ways."

Details are starting to come up about what happened between the Executive Producer and the network. THR is reporting that series creator Robert Kirkman may have played a part. "Kirkman was one of several producers on the show who had issues with Mazzara and his vision," they wrote. "I believe Robert wants to maintain a certain amount of his control," said an unnamed insider "and AMC needs Robert for the fan base." Kirkman is reportedly "very proprietary" about the comic's translation to television.

Another source claimed the reason behind Mazzara's departure was his "short comings" as a showrunner. They allege the problem became very clear in the second half of the season when production was shut down "several times" due to a lack of material.

We may never know for sure what happened between AMC and Glen Mazzara, but we certainly hate to see him leaving the series. The Walking Dead returns from hiatus on February 10.

The New Showrunner for The Walking Dead Has Been Chosen

by SuperHeroHype

January 14, 2013

The Walking Dead is one of the most popular television shows on cable and it's managed to stay that way through all of the hierarchy changes. When the show was confirmed to be returning for it's fourth season this fall, it was also announced that Season 3 showrunner Glen Mazzara would be leaving the production. THR is now reporting that executive producer Scott Gimple has been promoted to showrunner for the fourth season.

Gimple joined the show at the start of its second season working as a producer and he is credited with writing five episodes. He is also credited with writing the screenplay for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

The promotion of Gimple makes him the third showrunner for The Walking Dead since its premiere just a few years ago. Frank Darabont brought the series to life and was let go halfway through production on the second season when Glen Mazzara was promoted. Mazzara will part ways with the network when work on the third season has finished.

Larry Gilliard Jr. Joins The Walking Dead for Season 4

by SuperHeroHype

April 27, 2013

Rumors began circulating last week that "The Wire" alum Larry Gilliard Jr. was in talks to join the hit AMC series The Walking Dead. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Gilliard has signed on for the series and will play the role of former Army medic turned alcoholic Bob Stookey.

In the source material, Stookey was a resident of Woodbury and saved The Governor's life after being tortured by Michonne. With David Morrissey set to return as The Governor in the upcoming season, it remains to be seen if these two characters will interact, but it does seem likely.

The Walking Dead will begin production on its fourth season this May and will return to air in October.

AMC CEO Says No End to The Walking Dead in Sight

by SuperHeroHype

May 22, 2013

The cast and crew of The Walking Dead are back in Atlanta, Georgia as you read this, prepping and working on the fourth season of the ever popular AMC series. When series creator Robert Kirkman brought the series to life in comic book form, he envisioned it as the "never ending zombie story," which seems to be the mantra being brought to the television series.

“We hope that zombies live forever and we’ve just begun to find out what the post-apocalyptic world is like,” said AMC Networks CEO Josh Sapan (via The Hollywood Reporter), “so that we’ll be sitting here at the Barclays conference in 2022 discussing the fact that Walking Dead is not over."

Do you think The Walking Dead will stick around for over ten seasons? Would you want to see it go on that long? Sound off below!

The Walking Dead will return this October with another 16-episode season.

If they can keep the quality up, I think 10 seasons is sufficient. With only 16 shows per season, I don't think we'll get much in the way of filler.

Although I wouldn't mind them getting out of Georgia (and the prison).

Without posting a huge spoiler, can anyone tell me if the rest of the country and the world are addressed in the comics at some point? A yes or no would be good.
